Students who pay by credit card will receive a refund on the credit card used in the original transaction. Credit card refunds for dropped classes will not be processed until after the Official Day of Record. Please allow 7-10 business days for your refund to be processed.

If you withdraw after making your first installment payment of tuition and fees, your refund will be reduced by any balance that remains on your student account.  Financial aid may be applied towards balances within the same aid year before a refund is issued. Cash, credit card, check, or money order payments may be applied to other balances on the student’s account before any refund is issued.

Complete Withdrawal Refunds
The refund percentage for complete withdrawal is based upon a 100% payment of tuition and fees at registration. Students who pay on installment will have their installment balance subtracted from their refund. All additional financial obligations will also be deducted from the refund. See Academic Calendars for withdrawal and refund dates.  


Partial Withdrawal Refunds
If you officially drop some but not all of your courses by the Official Day of Record as listed in the Academic Calendar, you will be eligible for a 100% refund for the courses you dropped. After those dates, there will be NO refunds for partial withdrawals. Students should meet all financial obligations prior to receiving a refund.
